Chilled Lemon Cheesecake


Makes 1 20cm round cake or 6 eggs

Cooking difficulty: Easy

Preparation time: 30 mins

Chill time: 6 hours

I made this cheesecake into novelty eggs and smashed eggs for Easter. To do this (or individual cheesecakes) you will need to double the base mixture and have egg shaped moulds (the plastic boxes that come with chocolate eggs work well lined with greased foil).
